Jayapataka Swami Update Nov 9, 2008

Today mornings' Srila Jayapataka Maharaj is evidence of the power of prayers of all the devotees all over the world. By Srila Prabhupada's and Krishna's mercy Maharaj is completely conscious, recognizing everyone, trying to speak and chant (of course he can't do that because of the tracheostomy tube) and moves all his limbs. HH Bhakti Caru Maharaj, HH Kavicandra Maharaj, HH Bhakti Siddhanta Maharaj were all reading from Caitanya Caritamrta and Maharaj could understand everything.

Maharaj wants to come out of the ventilator. His blood pressure and other parameters are stable. We are hoping that very soon he will be out of the ventilator as well but that remains unpredictable even at this moment.

Maharaj is also getting acupuncture. Yesterday the first sitting of acupuncture was done and it will continue as long as the hospital authorities allow us.

Please continue to pray very sincerely and enthusiastically.
